Local student bound for D.C.


Adrian L. Evans, Jr., was nominated and selected for the Junior National Young Leaders Conference. He is the son of Adrian and Michelle Evans and was selected by Robert J. Burch Elementary school in Fayette County.

He will travel to Washington, D.C. June 27-July 2, and during that time the nation’s capital will serve as his living classroom as he explores leadership through the lens of American history at the National Museum of American History and Lincoln, Vietnam Veterans, and Korean War Veterans Memorials. He will be a special guest at historic Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, where he will study John Brown’s 1859 raid and discuss the choices and consequences of leadership. To cap off his program experience, he will spend an unforgettable night at the Maryland Science Center among the exhibits.

“The Junior National Young Leaders Conference enables students to recognize their own leadership abilities in the context of great men and women from the past and present,” said Marguerite Regan, Ph.D., the Dean of Academic Affairs for JrNYLC. “They return home with new confidence in their ability to make a positive impact in their school and communities. Washington, D.C., serves as the perfect backdrop for this inspiring program to generate a new generation of U.S. leaders.”

Evans achieved this nomination and selection while being very active in the community and athletics in addition to his academic achievement.
